Black Narcissus (1947)

A group of nuns struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire to drive the well-intentioned missionaries mad. (NR, 101 min.)
"It remains a rapturous, near-indescribable work of cinematic art."

- AV Club

Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)

During a rural summer picnic, a few students and a teacher from an Australian girls' school vanish without a trace. Their absence frustrates and haunts the people left behind. (PG, 107 min.)
"One of the most hauntingly beautiful mysteries ever created on film."
- San Francisco Chronicle

The Swimmer (1968)

A man spends a summer day swimming as many pools as he can all over a quiet suburban town.
(PG, 95 min.)
"As do few movies, The Swimmer stays in the memory like an echo that never quite disappears."
- New York Times

Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

The story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who successfully united and led the diverse, often warring, Arab tribes during World War I in order to fight the Turks. (PG, 216 min.)
"Riveting from beginning to end, featuring stellar performances, amazing cinematography, and a story without a trace of fat, the film does everything an epic is supposed to do - and more."
- Reelviews

Annihilation (2018)

A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.
(R, 115 min.)
"Absorbing and hypnotic, Annihilation is the best kind of sci-fi film - the kind that challenges and subverts the genre, all the while introducing new ideas that you'll see in films to come."


Red Desert (1964)

In an industrial area, unstable Giuliana attempts to cope with life by starting an affair with a co-worker at the plant her husband manages. Original title: Il deserto rosso
(NR, 117 min.)
"Red Desert is Antonioni's clearest, most striking statement of purpose - and one of cinema's great films."
- Little White Lies
